Was Rihanna Feuding With The Head Of Apple Music During Last Night's Game?

The Cavs and Warriors during the NBA Finals.

Rihanna was fired up courtside at last night's Cavs-Warriors Game 1.

During last night's Game 1 of the NBA Finals, pop megastar Rihanna had a seat up close to the action. She showed off her love for LeBron James and the Cavs, and may have started a feud with Kevin Durant.

Oh, and she made a huge impression on broadcaster Jeff Van Gundy.

Additionally, Rihanna could be seen bowing down to James after one play. At that point, someone else sitting courtside pointed and told her to sit down. Rihanna responded by hitting the dab.

As it turns out, the man was subsequently identified as Eddy Cue, Apple’s senior vice president for internet software and services. Cue is a huge Warriors fan. Some Rihanna supporters took to Twitter to express their displeasure with Cue, threatening to cancel their Apple Music subscriptions.

There are more mentions of Cue out there. For what it is worth, he claims he was talking to someone named Marissa, who was near Rihanna.

It will be interesting to see if Cue and Rihanna are both back in the same spots for Game 2 on Sunday night.
